Default window switch question nitrous newb

ok i have a question about hooking a window switch up, can i just buy a tach adaptar and run it to a window switch, or is there a easier way of doing it??

Which window switch do you have?

A lot of them hook up to a green wire on the passenger side coil pack harness.

I am using the single stage window switch that Nitrous Outlet and Dynotune sell...but the HarrisSpeedWorks MicroEdge is a nice item with a lot more options.

Default harris speed microedge

What ever you do since you havent already bought one. you need to buy the harrisspeed works microedge controller. it has numerous safety features that you will want to have when shooting nitrous. i have one and couldnt have spent 150 on anything better especially with the options that you have at your finger tips. my vote just get it and the instructions are very good also

MicroEdge here also and the best bang for the buck bar none. Depending on the car, there are numerous pick up points for getting a tach signal and the Microedge directions have all the needed info to wire the tach input.

Yup,

No need for a tach adapter with the microedge. It can read just about any type of rpm signal.
